LVT 2019 rosé 2018 r 2018 wh A top grade domaine hit by the tragic, sudden death of Christophe Delorme aged 52, from a heart attack in June 2015. Modern style wines, have a lot of gusto in them. The Tavel is a little less full-on than in the past, likewise the white Lirac - a more tender approach has been taken from the early 2010s. The 2016 Tavel La Reine des Bois - the top Tavel - was a marvellous STGT ****(*) wine of which Christophe would have been very proud; the 2019 was also ****(*) and STGT.

The red Lirac La Reine des Bois is one of the best in its appellation, the 2015 a serene, well-filled ****(*) wine, the vigorous 2016 also ****(*), and the 2017 another ****(*) wine, high quality and very fair VALUE. The new Dame Rousse Les Vestides Tavel, created in 2013, is very good, and testament to Christophe's craft. The Châteauneuf-du-Pape reds, La Dame des Bois and the Belle Voyageuse, have always been racy and interesting: the 2016 La Dame was a ***** wine, the 2016 Voyageuse a ****(*) wine, while both were ****(*) in 2018. The domaine is now officially organic.
